Tony Allen received a one-game suspension from the NBA when he accidentally kicked Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul in the face during a game on Nov. 18, and now he’s auctioning off the shoe that struck his opponent.
The Memphis Grizzlies guard has listed his left shoe from that game on eBay, and as of Friday night, the auction is up to $5,400 with 47 bids. The auction is scheduled to end on Sunday. In addition to a nice display case, Allen also signed the shoe.
The best part of this auction is that 100 percent of the final sale price will be donated to charity, specifically the Youth Village in Memphis.
According to the listing’s description, the money raised will help “buy presents for children receiving help on Youth Villages? Memphis residential campuses and group homes.”
